Would you watch a live execution on TV?

| | Comments (2)

I was only in the car for a few minutes tonight driving home from James and George's, but just long enough to hear a few minutes of the Phil O'Neil show. Their topic of the moment was reality tv, and has it gone too far. The very last thing they asked before going to a song and I got home was "would you watch a live execution on tv?" I would have to say, probably not.

When I was in uni, we were shown a video in one of our general studies subjects in which two people were killed (in separate incidents). I'd never seen anything like this before, and I found it quite disturbing. So no, if I had the opportunity to watch an execution on tv, I would probably choose not to watch.

hrm that was rather macarb .. how about a this or that tuesday..

1. Holland or Netherlands? I call it the Netherlands
2. Emu or Ostrich? I've read the rest of these, and they are alternate names for the same thing. Emus and ostriches are not the same thing! They are entirely different birds
3. Biff or Happy? er..
4. Quincy or Braintree? who?
5. Cassius Clay or Muhammad Ali? Depends on your context I suppose. I always think of him as Muhammad Ali
6. Instanbul or Constantinople? Istanbul
7. Pig or Swine? Pig
8. Barf or Puke? I probably use barf more often
9. Potatoes or Spuds? Potatoes more often, but I use spuds too
10. Squeeze Box or Accordion? Accordian

hrm well that was a bit of a silly one.
